Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
I have a troybilt xp, and the self propel fungtion does not ingage at all. i just replaced the transmission and that did not help at all.
Does the drive shaft going to the wheels turn at all?
If it doesnt you may have a unsecured pulley on the engine.
If the shaft does turn when you engage the tranny your next stop is taking the wheels off and checking the wheel clutches. Sometimes called sprag clutches. They are probably both stuck in the unlocked position. You need to clean them up by removing all the greasy material covering them and putting them back together with just a few drops of light oil.
I hope this helps. Good luck and be careful!
